Description: In the heart of Greektown, you'll find Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna's delicious Mediterranean cuisine, a fine dining atmosphere, and great service! For nearly 25 years, we've enjoyed food and people and the act of bringing them together. From the moment you enter our doors, you're treated like a member of the Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna family! Our staff serves up true Mediterranean cooking that our families grew up eating. We work to educate diners about the delights of Greek cuisine - the health benefits of indigenous ingredients like extra virgin olive oil and plant-based foods, the savory flavors of lamb, and the welcoming atmosphere. Try our unforgettable Yuvetsaki pasta with tender morsels of beef braised with fresh plum tomatoes, olive oil, wine, and herbs, or our delectable Arni Pisto - slices of prime roasted leg of lamb in natural au jus! And don't forget to pair your meal with a glass of fine wine or treat yourself to one of our famous specialty cocktails. During the Summer months, be sure to plan a trip to enjoy our spectacular veranda featuring an unmatched eastern view of the Chicago skyline. Gather your friends or family and order some Mezethes - small plates that are made for sharing and a fantastic way to sample a variety of Greek dishes. Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna is the ultimate Greektown destination for enjoying good food, family, and friends. Come by today for lunch or dinner and taste all the best of what the Mediterranean has to offer!

I simply love the food in this restaurant, they have a family dinner for a good price with incredible options. The only think that is really bad is that if you do not pay 20% gratuity they will treat you very bad!!! I think this is an absurd cause you can pay from 15% to 20% (this is the average... More

Pegasus is located on Halsted, in Greektown, just to the west of the Chicago Loop. They serve authentic Greek cuisine that is consistently excellent. Their menu is varied and the cost is moderate, at least for Chicago. Service is outstanding - very friendly, professional and they go out of their way to be sure the customer is happy. The inside...

It has been a number of years since we ate at Pegasus but sadly this time around it was disappointing. It is still a beautiful setting and the staff although a bit slow was pleasant. The fresh fishes were terrific but the rest of the meal seemed almost pedestrian and simply did not stand up to diners who have been... More

I'm sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations this time around. We take pride in our authentic Greek dishes, so it's disappointing to hear when a guest isn't satisfied, especially someone who is a return customer. It sounds like everything else provided for a largely positive experience. Ihope you'll be able to visit soon -- we'd welcome the opportunity... More

A small place in the Greek section of Chicago. We were looking for another place and came here. We were pleasantly surprised. The menu was good as was the food. The staff here were very friendly and we ended up staying longer just to talk as it was a slow time for the restaurant.

We felt like Greek food so we walked and walked until we reached Greek Town. There are TA 4 star ranked Greek restaurants in a row, so what to pick? We decided on Pegasus based on some reviews. We are glad we did. Nice interior and our waitress Marvina was a delight and helped us with the menu. We decided... More

Nice typical Greek restaurant décor and good service, as a solo diner sat at the bar to watch the ballgame rather than the dining room. Ordered the Chicken stuffed with spinach and Feta Cheese, this was very good and would order again. If you want a taste of Greece I recommend this restaurant in Greek Town.

I'm thrilled you loved the Kota Alexander, Richard. Sounds like it's become your new favorite! We enjoy having our friends from around the neighborhood hang out and dine with us. You should come by whenever it's warm enough to have a drink on our veranda and take in the skyline. Hope to see you again soon! Ceasar, Managing Partner More

Great Greek food on my first night in Chicago! My cousin and I went up to the rooftop and ordered from their tapas menu. It was delicious and had a great atmosphere.

We had a lovely meal on the rooftop veranda eating several good small dishes including calamari, saganaki, salad, and loin lamp chops that were excellent. Service was stupendous with very attentive wait staff. Being on the veranda not only afforded lovely views, including the former Sears Tower, but also allowed for conversation without having to raise your voice or strain... More
